This homeless man not only made sure a young woman got home safely, he caused her to change her mind about people she sees on the street.
Nichole Sedgebeer missed the last train home, after a night out in London, and the station was locked so she couldn’t stay inside until morning.

That’s when a homeless stranger showed up. He could see how upset she was, and offered to help.
The man, identified only as Mark, knew of an all-night coffee shop nearby. He led the 21-year-old to it, making sure she didn’t have to walk empty, dark streets alone.
After leaving her in the safety of the shop, he left–but promised to return in time to escort her back to the station for the first morning train.
Mark showed up the next morning, running down the street to catch up with Nichole because his bus had been late. She was stunned he’d gone to so much trouble to reach her.
“This man who I probably would of avoided eye contact with if he asked for spare change, completely changed such a negative event into the most eye opening event in my life,” Nichole wrote on Facebook, when she posted a selfie with him.
Nichole was so impressed with Mark that she set up a crowdfunding account to get him off the street and into a room. So far, she’s collected £10,207.
“Mark you are one special man.”
